please read the next paragraph a couple of times before replying.
like i said, i'm not going to get into an apples to oranges comparison
between a 172 bhp stock a4q and a gazillion bhp M3. the M3 wins, ok?
my point is that if you equalize the braking and the bhp i'm not
convinced that 50-50 and LSD is better than AWD. look at the racing
results. tell me why the audis are beating the bimmers, even with
a weight handicap and an uneven weight distribution.
as for 50-50 weight distribution and limited slip being the holy grail,
i don't agree one bit. i have a miata with a torsen rear end and the
ideal 50-50 weight distribution. you think i'd choose this over the
q on a wet or snowy day? you'd have to be smoking some serious weed
to think that! no doubt a miata's no M3, but 50-50 and LSD doesn't
automatically turn everything into an unbeatable combination either.
